UCLA Elmer Belt Florence Nightingale Collection


This collection of books by and about Florence Nightingale was a gift from urologist Elmer Belt to UCLA's Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library in 1958. The gift honored School of Nursing Dean Lulu Wolf Hassenplug for her successful creation of the school in 1948 and her direction of it through its first ten years at the University of California, Los Angeles. The books have a characteristic mid-Victorian appearance; they are not beautiful either in typography or binding but, with content reflecting the influence of Florence Nightingale, they are immensely rich in human value. The collection includes editions of Nightingale's influential "Notes on Nursing" (1859 and later) and her other publications as well as biographies and tributes.

The first available American edition followed in 1860 ove the imprint of D. Appleton and Company. This facsimile has been reproduced from the copy in the Rare Book Room of the Library of Congress."--"The story of...
